Unable to join SBS 2003 Domain. The Network path was not found.
Posted on 2007-11-19
I have set up a parallel network to migrate a NT 4.0 environment to SBS 2003. The subnets are 192.168.1 (old) and 192.168.0 (new) separated by a router. I've named the new system the same as the old with the same domain name, company.local. On the workstation I am attempting to join to the domain, I obtain my IP address from the new servers DHCP and nslookup works flawlessly. Still, when I attempt to join the domain by selecting "domain" in the change computer name dialog box, enter the correct administrator credentials, I get "The Network path was not found". The workstation had joined the old domain via netbios. I switched it to a temporary workgroup and then thought I'd join it to the new domain. Not so... yet.
Thank you for your input.
